Ingredients

  • 1

    cup light corn syrup

  • 2

    cups mini marshmallows

  • ¾

    cup creamy natural unsweetened peanut butter, well stirred

  • 1

    teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • ½

    teaspoon kosher salt

  • 4

    cups thin pretzel sticks, roughly chopped

  • 4

    cups unsweetened puffed-wheat cereal

  • 2

    ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted

  • ½

    teaspoon smoked salt (or additional kosher salt)

Directions

1. Lightly grease a 9-inch-by-13-inch baking dish and set aside. 2. In a large saucepan set over medium-high heat, combine the sugar with the corn syrup, then bring the mixture to a boil. Turn off the heat, stir in the marshmallows until about half of them are melted, then stir in the peanut butter until well combined. Add the vanilla and salt. Mix in the pretzels and puffed wheat until well combined. 3. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish and, using lightly greased hands, pat it firmly into the dish. Drizzle with melted chocolate and sprinkle with smoked salt. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm. Once firm, slice into small bars with a hot, wet knife, then serve.
